A man walks back into the past...

Advantages: Compact
Disadvantages: poor volume

I'm rather sad it's all over for the traditional tape cassette player, production shut down on October 25th 2010. They were by far the most durable music players, especially for running and exercise, and didn't burn up the batteries like portable CD playe ...

Mikomi... me disappointed

Advantages: Very cheap, good radio, easy (ish) to use
Disadvantages: Terrible headphones, lack of rewind button!

I bought this radio/cassette player because I need a tape player with headphones that doesn't do anything fancy, just plays a tape, for my French A Level exam. Not that you're interested. So off I popped to my nearest store which gives you extra, and si ...

Cheap at twice the price

Advantages: Full DAB for under a tenner including batteries
Disadvantages: only a DAB/FM radio - basic but functional
